Mr Dipo Olorunrinu has begged the National Caretaker Committee of the party to ensure grassroots members are in the know when it comes to the preparations for the forthcoming party’s national convention.
“The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) National Caretaker Committee, led by Sen. Ahmed Makarfi, should consider the grassroots members and carry them along concerning the coming national convention.
“There are lots of existing voters in Lagos state already; we cannot continue getting it wrong in Lagos State.
“If our leaders do not carry the people at the grassroots along, it may affect the convention because a tree cannot make a forest,” he said.
According to him, the national convention should not be planned among the members in Federal Capital alone, adding that people and members at the grassroots across the states must as well be involved.
“We cannot do caricature convention and expect positive change, we know our problems and we have the solutions to the problems.
“Let us come to the grassroots politics instead of doing it as usual that brings no positive result.
“Members of the party must be recognised if harmonisations will work, but we if we do any harmonisation without grassroots members, that means we only organise caucus meeting not convention.”
